A wet and freezing Sunday as we walked around Stow. Noticed one pub offering the Best Sunday lunch in Stow, but didn't look very inviting! Going back to the car park we found the Old Butchers and was delighted that there was a table available for us. Food was just perfect and such a relaxed atmosphere.....this is the Best Sunday...

Booked a mid week lunch and it was superb .Out starters were Tempura soft shell crab and Spinach,lentil and cumin and yoghurt soup. Main courses Cornish Lemon Sole ,brown shrimp,capers and Lemon. As always bags of flavour and spot on cooking. As we have said before this is the best tasting food for miles .

Went to the Old Butchers for a Valentine's meal. Was wary when we arrived from the outside... But we needn't have worried. Smart, funny & effective but non intrusive staff. Full of character & charm. Delicious menu with some interesting and original dishes. Felt and tasted delicious. I heartily recommend the Old Butchers for every kind of meal.

We haven't been to the Old Butchers for a while , although the food was wonderful we would always feel rather cramped in. However , four of us went to dinner last night and we will certainly be going back in the near future. The restaurant layout has changed since we were last there and it felt much more spacious....

We booked an early table at the Old Butchers with our children (10 and under). The staff were friendly and welcoming, and related well with our children and their requests for paper and pens, and offering appropriate suggestions for 'kids meals' - that weren't just nuggets, but were popular smaller versions of main menu meals. We were more experimental with... More

My friend had a brandade with chorizo followed by pork belly and cheeks with vegetables, she really enjoyed it, the wine was very good, the wine list and... More
